    Just never agreed with these guys on Pulp Fiction? What am I missing? I didn’t care for it in the LEAST. I have not seen it again. Its a quarter of a century old now, maybe I need to give it another chance.

      You’re missing EVERYTHING. It’s one of the greatest American films EVER made, and a strong candidate for the greatest film of the 90’s!! Don’t know if you noticed, but in the quarter of a century since you saw it’s become a bonafide CLASSIC and one of the most quotable & imitated films ever. There’s a reason for that. An indisputable MASTERWORK.

    I gotta agree with Alejandro on this one, “Pulp Fiction” is a classic and was a mind-blowing original when it came out in 1994. I remember seeing it in an arthouse theater, one of those with a screen about the size of a bedsheet, there was no advance word on it that I was aware of, I just went in cold and came out amazed and stunned. It didn’t stay in that arthouse for long, it played in multiplexes all over town after a week. It’s certainly worth a second look; after practically every filmmaker in Hollywood has been influenced by it and Tarantino, it’s possible now to view it as simply a film, not a gigantic EXPERIENCE, and it quickly becomes clear how great a film it is.
